  • Multiple IVF Cycles

    Hey everyone!

    I've had multiple IVF cycles at the ARGC due to unexplained infertility, including 3 miscarriages. I have a low AMH levels and have been told my chances of conceiving were minimal at best. Immediately after the 3rd miscarriage I felt very low and now I'm willing to try anything with the intention of having another round of IVF. My body is completely shattered after having been put through so much in a relatively short period of time.

    Has anyone else been through something similar and have any advice or a happy ending to share?

    Hey Catherine,

    I know how you feel. I've been through the same thing, not at the ARGC but at a different clinic. It's emotionally and physcially exhausting.

    I ended up doing 5 IVF cycles and each time the number of eggs they collected was less and less. Now I'm having to do a donor cycle.

    Hang in there. I have girlfriends for whom IVF has worked x

      Hello Everyone, I just finished my 1st IVF cycle & it was not successful, only retrieved 2 eggs & they were both bad quality. Going back on Tuesday for my new protocol for my 2nd cycle. Just wondering how many cycles it took you to become pregnant? Feeling bummed & hoping my next cycle is a success!

        It doesn’t matter who you are if your IVF cycle is unsuccessful, you will undoubtedly feel low and will look for reasons why. Every person will react in their own way and go through an array of emotions, depending on whether this is your first or subsequent attempt at IVF. It will take a while to get over the disappointment but accept the loss, and then move on and look ahead. You can’t compare yourself to other persons and their reactions when their IVF cycle doesn’t matter. Miscarriage is a devastating situation affecting roughly 1 in 5 pregnancies. Women who had three or more consecutive miscarriages are usually referred to as having recurrent miscarriages. Women with very less AMH levels undergoing IVF still have a chance of achieving a pregnancy, but their prognosis is significantly affected by chronological age. It is completely possible to get pregnant with your own eggs or donor eggs with less AMH. After all, it just takes 1 healthy egg. Your AMH level won't tell the whole of your fertility story there are many other ways to boost your fertility.

          IVF failure can leave you very disappointed. But you need to know that there is still hope for you and that repeated attempts can help you fulfil your dream of parenthood. When you have been trying a baby for a long period of time, IVF can come as a become of hope. So you go in with your eyes for high expectations and hopes, follow your doctor’s advice, and hope to come out of it pregnant. And then the unexpected happens your IVF cycle again fails. You are heartbroken, with hopes dashed, unsure of what you should do next. The best is that there are multiple options available. If you have been diagnosed and have less AMH levels. You need to consult your doctor who will tailor the treatment protocol on the basis of your history, examination and other tests.
